Same as always: 
Sunday January 16 2022 from 11 am till about 2pm PDT.  

In person at Blue Door Cafe 2244 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704 
Right across from the Cal track and the Rec facility.  

Online Jitsi meeting hosted by the jit.si servers 
Connect straight from your web browser or for audio only by phone 
Dial-in: +1.512.647.1431 PIN: 3314 0912 09#

Possible topics:  
- Matter and Thread.  I don't quite get what these are about.  Something 
about the "smart home" and IOT.  Interesting because people run "home assistant" on the Pi 
and you can have sensors running on ESP32

- LoRaWan:  Been thinking of trying this out.  It is like wifi but designed for low bandwidth communication.  So designed for low power and long range.  The kind of thing you would want for a remote sensor that sends occasional messages.  

- Pi server:  I still need to get a server install up on a Pi.  So this will be my main focus unless I get distracted by the above.  

All are welcome and all ideas welcome.

Forwarding this to the list.  

The BerkeleyLUG mailing list is changed so that if you reply to a post it goes to that person.  Not to the list.  

I believe that Juan wanted to send this out to the whole list.  

So if you are a Gmail user and you want to reply on list then you need to select "Reply to all "  from the 3 dots menu or  "Reply all" from the bottom.

hey you guys have a pc parts not using anymore u  want to share   memories  ddr3  videos cards cpu etetc mother board????

Anyways to reply to Juan:  

I plan to upgrade some time soon as my machine is old now and I want to try to play some VR games.   I have ordered some VR 
hardware so maybe I should get with it and start building a new system.  

This is what I got now:

tom@tom-desktop:~$ inxi -b

The CPU is the 1st gen E3-1245 probably like a 2nd or third gen I7.
The video card is pretty old. But I do little with it and run Linux anyways.
It can only do 4k at 30hz. I have a gtx 970 -- was told it works but haven't tried it.
Bought a RTX 3060 a while ago but I think it overheats. Was thinking to RMA it but maybe I can check again if it is good.
